In Charleston for 3 days. Found this hotel online. It was old but clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable! Would definitely stay here again.

A Wonderful Weekend Away

Posted Apr 7, 2015
The staff at the Francis Marion couldn't have been nicer! They would assist with anything that you needed. From providing recommendations to arranging shuttles, they were glad to help out with anything that would make your stay a little more enjoyable. The only thing that could be upgraded is the water temperature during a shower. The temperature would fluctuate and that would get to be annoying. Other than that the location couldn't have been more perfect and I would definitely stay here again. If you plan your stay over a weekend, be sure to check out the farmers market directly across the street on Saturday mornings. It's awesome!

Great location.

Posted Apr 6, 2015
The hotel is in a fabulous location. It is the oldest standing hotel in Charleston so there are some quirky features about it. The bathrooms are small, elevators slow, and windows and doors and not sound proof. With that being said, I love staying at the hotel. The service is top notch and is is a bit of Charleston history!

The hotel is in a fantastic location with easy walking to historic Charleston and the waterfront. We were there visiting with family from Charlotte and experiencing the sights and history of Charleston.

Excellent but pricey.

Posted Mar 30, 2015
Aside from the slow elevators, which has improved in 30 years, the facility is grand. Sophia at the front desk was the most courteous, polite, helpful and knowledgeable person I have ever run across in that role. While the hotel is old, the facilities are well maintained, exceptionally clean and a delight to stay in. Highly recommended to all.

Great hotel, if you don't have neighbors

Posted Mar 24, 2015
Cons: Thicker walls.
Location: Accessible to everything.
The walls are paper thin, we could hear our neighbors have a normal conversation at 1:30 a.m. and again at 5:30 a.m. Needless to say we got no sleep. Great location, staff is great, rooms/beds are comfortable and clean. We've stayed here before and didn't have this problem so it may depend on which room you stay in?

Very good location.

Posted Mar 23, 2015
Pros: Location, and charm.
Cons: Fix the A/C.
Location: Close to everything. Bus stop right on corner.
Hotel was very nice. Room was OK nothing special. Would not cool down, to warm at night. If we had stayed one more day, would have changed rooms.

Nice location close to shops and restaurants

Posted Mar 23, 2015
Pros: Great room cpmplete with a small seating area. Comfortable beds. Nice and quiet.
Cons: Would be nice to have an exhaust fan in the bathroom.
Location: Shopping on King Street, restaurants on E. Bay Street; all within easy walking distance!
Very nice room in a prime location to shops on King and Meeting Sts and many fabulous restaurants. We were able to check in early which was wonderful.
